* Employee Parking Permits Available Beginning August 12

2020-2021 employee parking permit registration is now available on-line!

Parking Permits are available on-line. No need to walk to the Office of Public Safety, fill out any paperwork or wait in line for your permit!

How do I register for a Parking Permit?

You can register for your Parking Permit through the UE Self-Service portal using your UE username and password. The Parking Permits link is under “UE Forms.” Click on the menu icon (upper left hand corner) > UE Forms > Employee > Parking Permits. If you need assistance with accessing self-service, please contact OTS help desk at (812) 488-2077.

How much does a Parking Permit cost and how do I pay for it?

Parking Permits are $50 and can be paid through a quick and easy on-line payroll deduction of $10 installments over five pay periods or by cash/check at the cashier window in Student Financial Services, Olmsted 105.

What is the process for applying and paying for a Parking Permit?

Employees will go to the appropriate link on UE Self-Service (see instructions above) and follow the processes for registering a vehicle. Once you have registered your vehicle and enrolled for payroll deduction, stop by the cashier window in Student Financial Services and pick up your Parking Permit. That’s all there is to it!

What if I don’t want to do payroll deduction?

If you opt to pay cash/check at Student Accounts, you will still need to register your vehicle on self-service. Then you will need to print out the registration confirmation sheet and take it to the cashier window in Student Financial Services. The cashier will take your payment, mark your confirmation sheet as paid, and issue your permit. Be advised: If you choose to pay cash/check, the process will take a little longer to prepare the transactions.

What if I am a President’s Club member or have a UE license plate - does that make a difference?

President’s Club members are asked to register their vehicles on-line simply for the purposes of being able to provide timely information in the event of an emergency (ie. Someone has damaged your vehicle and we need to notify you). President’s Club stickers will be distributed via the Office of Development upon confirmation of the donation.

Discounts for UE license plates are only valid if the plate is active at the time of permit registration. There are no discounts or refunds once the permit is assigned. The discounted fee for employees who have UE license plates is $25.

Where do I pick up my Permit?

Parking Permits will be distributed at Student Financial Services. We strongly encourage all employees to apply and pick up their Parking Permits Wednesday, August 12 thru Friday, August 21, 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. to avoid the rush of the distribution of Student Parking Permits.

If you have any questions concerning the application process, please contact the Office of Public Safety at 812-488-2051.

* Khan will Participate in the 2021 Annual Meeting of the World Finance Conference

Walayet A. Khan, Professor of Finance, will participate in the upcoming virtual 2021 annual World Finance Conference as the discussant, chair, and presenter. The papers to be presented are as follows:

1. Institutional Settings and Dividend Policy in Emerging Markets

Using a comprehensive time series and cross- sectional sample covering 25 emerging markets countries from 2001 through 2017, we investigate the effect of shareholder protection, creditor protection, and other country-level governance variables (e.g., control of corruption and rule of law) on the dividend policies of firms.

2. Impact of Global Residential Real Estate on Portfolio Diversification

Our focus is specifically on residential real estate, unlike previous literature where the emphasis is on REITs or commercial real estate. Using a sample from 1998 to 2008, we examine whether the inclusion of international real estate positively affected stock portfolio diversification. We analyzed whether US stocks plus international real estate portfolios dominated the portfolio of US stocks and international stocks.

3. Efficiency Performance and the Insolvency Risk for Takaful Insurance Firms: Evidence from the Gulf Cooperation Council Countries

We utilize the data envelopment analysis (DEA) and the distance-to-default concept (Z-score) to examine the efficiency performance and the insolvency risk (IR) of 54 Takaful firms (TFs- Islamic insurance firms) in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. Given the increasing interest and growth in the Takaful industry, an in-depth analysis of efficiency performance and insolvency risk offers value to various stakeholders, including conventional and Takaful firms, policymakers, regulators, analysts, and investors


Thank You

* Journey to Justice - Civil Rights Bus Tour

From the Journey to Justice Team (Center for DEI, Ethics and Social Change Program, and the Center for Innovation and Change), a special thanks to all of the campus members and offices that helped make the inaugural Social Justice Movements course and Journey to Justice experience a success.

Here is what some of the students said:

“I can honestly say this was one of the most memorable journeys I have ever been on.”

“I met a lot of great people. I made a lot of great friends, [who] have a drive to make a difference in the world just as I do.”

“Thank you for providing me with this opportunity, and I hope the J2J continues to grow in the future…. This week was a transformation for me…. This week showed me why and how we can push for equality and it put into perspective that change is in my grasp.”

“Tomorrow will officially mark the end of the course of journey to justice but the beginning of a life-time of Journeys to Justice.”

“I’m so glad to have gotten out of this trip my goal of filling the piece of history I always knew I was missing. But along with that, I made new friends and got to know others as well as I got to learn more about myself.”

“I think overall this class was such an awesome experience and I wouldn’t trade this for anything. I enjoyed every part between the meals, the talks we had, the museums we went to, and the memorials. I got to connect with people that taught me a lot too, and the lessons I learned will carry on with me.”

Please accept our deepest gratitude for your expertise, patience, partnership, and time. We could not have done it without you.
